Atlantic Crossing Revisited

During the passage we crossed paths with the sailing yacht Alua. They took some pictures and video of us, and we also got some pictures and video of them. This photo op took place on January 4th near the midway point between Africa and Barbados. We were 1,145 miles east of Barbados and 1,277 miles west of Dakar, Africa.

How great that your friends could get you a picture of your own boat.
You can really see the need of the jib pole.
And wow, improved video production skills noted. The still shots integrated in at 480P looked great in full screen mode -- really shows the swell.
Alua, having a little windage, sure looked nice... as you overtook her, LOL
